Lasagna Soup On a Saturday Afternoon!

I’m getting accustomed to my job… and the adults that I care for… are getting use to me too…

I hear many compliments… Even my review from the Director was very good…

We use to say…”We’re in the honeymoon time”… when we first met a new student at school… The same goes for these Seniors…

All sweet and smilingk11404395and then you see the
“real”  self come out…k9671538

Bitterness… heartache… loneliness…

Agitation… tempers… emotions…

I’ve worked a long time… so nothing actually surprises me

Just disappoints sometimes… and my feelings go out to them…

I still feel I am in the right place… Being given true hugs… kind words... and the smiles abound…(most of the time)…

I am tired!… but, gets better every week… Over a month now…

and I do look forward to my days off like anyone who works… even if only 14 hours a week…

Being Saturday… cleaned a little… went to the store… and then came home and put togetherLasagna Soup … a recipe from Paula Deen off of Facebook…

Easy and simple… like I like!…

I put in crock pot… but, would be faster on top of stove… Just letting you know…



1 lb. – of ground beef…  (lean)

1/2 to 3/4 – of one Chopped Onion

1/2 to 3/4 – of one chopped Green Bell Pepper

3 cloves garlic … I smashed

Brown together…


2- cans Chicken Broth

 2- cans petite diced tomatoes

1- can tomato sauce

  1. YUMMMM! I love that it can be done in a crockpot…and grilled cheese (or cheesy garlic toast) would make the perfect side!!!

    I could eat soup, salad and/or sandwiches every day, but the hubster is more a meat and taters kinda guy. I think even he would like this soup ;) Thanks for sharing, Marilyn…putting it in my file for a happy surprise!
